Sad conclusion of this research project:
“So, unfortunately, sustainable cobaltmining in the DRC is still a utopia.”
Completely off topic:
Interesting to find those two articles in this journal within a few weeks, that seem to be a bit contradictory to each other:
Global study shows environmentally friendly farming can increase productivity (17. August)
A major new study involving researchers from the University of York has measured a global shift towards more sustainable agricultural systems that provide environmental improvements at the same time as increases in food production.
‘High-yield’ farming costs the environment less than previously thought—and could help spare habitats (14. September)
Agriculture that appears to be more eco-friendly but uses more land may actually have greater environmental costs per unit of food than “high-yield” farming that uses less land, a new study has found.
Have not read those either.
